Monae Johnson has worked in the Secretary of State office under two administrations and is familiar with the responsibilities of the office.  She can hit the ground running on day one of her term.

I am grateful for her commitment to freedom and our Constitution which is under attack and encouraged that she is strongly defending our liberties.

It is vital that we vote on our values, so I’ll be voting for Monae.

Manny Steele

Former State Representative

I have known Monae Johnson for about 15 years. She is my friend who I have watched shine in adverse circumstances and come out smiling. She is engaging and a friend to all who would approach her, while discerning and smart. She has eight years of experience under two excellent Secretaries’ of State in South Dakota. She is a hard working woman, and one who knows who she is and knows her Lord.

One great experience we shared was several years ago in our Nation’s Capital. We walked the streets of Washington DC and prayed. We circled the Whitehouse and prayed for many Capital Police as we did so. As we walked and prayed we got to know each other’s hearts. We need Monae’s heart in our Secretary of State office and in our Capital City.
